Thanks for the heads up on these Edd as I ordered 20 the other day from the link you supplied (which still worked with the discount!). I spent today filling them with my 30 back reseals and spare bits and bobs that have spent far to long just resting on each other and worked out great.

Hopefully the plastic that they're made from won't end up effecting the bubbles over time but they are a great way of either storing or displaying mocs.

I've owned some of these for video games for over a decace and they all still look fresh. I often find star cases start going yellow after a few years.

Good to know and I figured for someone with a collection like yourself that you wouldn't take any chances. These are way better for storage though than anything else I have, especially for the price and going through my reseals I could see a few things that i still need to work on so it looks like I have some fun projects to keep me busy this year. :D

They’re really good / cheap for display and storage. Especially if like me you’d rather spend the £ on actual vintage, and I only have relatively cheap Mocs in any case.

Star cases for me are too cumbersome, and I actually think they look crap anyway. I find acrylic cases look nice, but very easily scratch and I think they can scuff cards if you’re a tad clumsy like me and like to take them out for a look occasionally. Perhaps it’s just me though.

Mine are leant up against wall on a shelf , no danger of them falling over, and they are very light I doubt any impact would cause a problem. Highly recommended.

I've just got some of these in the basis of this recommendation and think they look great. I got some of the hanging tabs as well to hang them on the wall. Much better looking than star cases. Thanks very much.

As mentioned in a previous reply I have used a similar product to store Bluray Steelbooks but have not used these for MOCs.
I was running out of acrylic cases (no buying drought here @edd_jedi ) and noticed that I had my good/rare/expensive Modern MOCs in acrylic, so decided to give these a go.
They arrived today and I can’t recommend them enough as a cheaper alternative to acrylic but 100 times better than Star cases.
Just remember to carry out pre assembly first. :D

I haven’t bought the action figure cases yet - Star Cases will do for now as I have plenty of those - but I do like the Deflector DC vehicle / playset cases. They’re not as good as acrylic but they look good on display, and most importantly for me, provide great protection to fragile boxes at a very affordable price.

I ordered a couple of these following Andy's advice, very pleased with them! Will stop them getting damaged in storage, and they don't even look too bad on display.
